Each storm passing over the Island and exploding in rain, thunder, lightning, or any combination of the above, is like a giant belch. The immediate aftermath brings some temporary relief, but the underlying belly ache is not cured. We’re oppressed by moisture here. Each storm brings some sweet winds and a little dry air, but leaves more moisture behind thus exacerbating the problem.
But help is one the way and the forecasts are shifting around as you would expect with such unstable masses of air. Some cooler air is on the way next week bringing some clearer skies though not necessarily lower humidity. The weekend will be mixed up during the transition so we’ll just have to see. The swell forecast remains “insane” during the next week. Peak wave height forecasts have dropped for 9 to 6.5 feet but North/Northwest winds on Sunday & Monday could be a phenomenal setup. No matter, the waves are huge. If you surf watch carefully for some memorable times.
